FEEDING DIRECTIONS

Suitable for carnivorous & omnivorous species

Baby turtles should be fed once per day. Turtles will usually start to eat their food whilst it is floating. After a short rest they will return to consume the remainder of their meal which has sunk to the bottom.

Gently place 1 cube per day into the water. Ideally the contents will be eaten within 24hrs and no excess food remains at the bottom of the tank. Remove and dispose of any uneaten food.

Once feeding is complete, replace lid on tray to avoid contamination and put the tray back into the freezer ready for the next day’s feed.

This feeding instruction is a guide only, adjust quantity depending on life stage, water temperature, body size and growth rates.

Yes, we have created a range of foods to meet your turtles daily dietry requirements. No additional foods are required to be added into the daily diet.

Our food has no preservatives, but is frozen to maintain the nutrient values. Research has shown that frozen foods do retain their nutrient component for longer than fresh, unfrozen foods.

All our meat is sourced from reputable abattoirs throughout Victoria, which ensures we are buying from a trusted source. Both our suppliers and our factory are licensed with PrimeSafe, who are the governing body responsible for conducting audits and checks for both meat suppliers and manufacturing facilities.

Our fish is as fresh as possible. It comes straight from the boat!

We have chosen to use (whole body) Blue Grenadier. Blue Grenadier contains high levels of collagen peptides and due to their smaller particle size have the best absorption and bioavailability, making them antioxidant powerhouses for your turtle.

We do not use cheap replacements such as salmon frames and heads.

There are times during the year that certain fruit and vegetables are not available or not at their best. Vegetables that have been stored for long periods of time in cold storage, tend to lose their goodness over time, so we only include market fresh vegetables. We add seasonal fruit and vegetables during their best growing season which are chosen for their specific nutrients, vitamins and minerals, ensuring our food is always balanced and also that our recipes are cost effective and do not fluctuate in price. A few examples of seasonal fruits and vegetables are: strawberries, blueberries, bananas, broccoli, cauliflower, asian greens etc…

We source our fresh fruit & vegetables from the local market

Superfoods are added to boost the nutritional levels of the food.

Our recipes only contain real whole foods and we chosen to nutritionally enhance them further by adding in natures superfoods to provide an even higher level of nutrition for your turtles health and wellness.

Not all calciums are the same!

Nature’s Organic Calcium is a certified organic plant based calcium containing naturally-available zinc, magnesium, boron, iron and other essential nutrients.

Calcium is the foundation block for building and maintaining bone health whilst ensuring a strong and healthy shell. This high-potency form of calcium is ideal for turtles as it is easily digestible.

We have sourced one of the most nutrient rich seaweed supplements available that is high in the trace mineral iodine, and collected from the pristine beaches of King Island, Tasmania. Seaweed is rich in many nutrients including Vitamin A, B complex, C, E and trace minerals iron, potassium, magnesium, phosphorus, calcium, selenium, iodine, copper, cobalt, sulphur and boron, also making it ideal for healthy turtles of all ages.

It is always best to speak to your local aquarium store for the best ways to keep your turtles healthy but here are a few important points:

  • Water temperature should be between 18-21 degrees centigrade.
  • The water in their tanks should be clean. Dirty water can cause a loss of appetite. Partial regular water changes are recommended. Also use a pH test kit for acidity levels.
  • Ensure good filtration and regularly clean the water filter.
  • It is recommended to give your turtles some unfiltered sunshine each day.
